Ethel Moody left Kensingston House School in 1897. Her reference from Miss Layton and Miss Charlton read as follows:
Aug. 24, ’97.
Miss Layton and Miss Charlton have much pleasure in saying that during the Three years Miis Moody resided with them as Head Music and 2nd English Mistress, she discharged her duties entirely to their satisfaction. Her Music was especially good, all pupils she entered passing and gaining a high per centage of marks in the Examinations of the Asso. Board of the R.A.M. and R.C.M.
Miss Layton and Miss Charlton consider Miss Moody in every way worthy of the highest respect and confidence of her employers.
